If you are an avid gardener, chances are that you’ve had to deal with dandelions infiltrating your garden. Perhaps you are even facing a dandelion problem in your garden right now. If this situation sounds familiar to you, then you have come to the right place. This blog post will talk about ways that you can get rid of your dandelion infestation.
You are probably aware of how pesky dandelions can be. One of the reasons why they are everywhere is because their seeds can be spread so easily. All you have to do is walk too closely to a dandelion, and all of its seeds have scattered all over the grass around it. The dandelion seeds also take flight on the wind, spreading themselves out and planting a new dandelion wherever the seeds happen to fall.
So how do you get rid of dandelions? You can either try to pull them or kill them off with herbicides. Trying to pull them out is definitely the more difficult option of the two, but you can try it if you’re feeling daring. The way to dig dandelions out of the ground is to pull them out by their taproot.
You must dig into the ground using a screwdriver or a special dandelion removal tool. Try to wiggle and pry the taproot up out of the ground. If the taproot begins to yield, then slowly pull the taproot up out of the ground. If the taproot doesn’t yield, you will probably have to keep digging to try to unearth the taproot.
You can also use herbicides to try to get rid of your dandelions. If you usually do not like using herbicides on your plants, try using a more organic mixture for your herbicide. You can use vinegar to help get rid of your dandelions.
Dandelions can be tough to get rid of. But if you know how to effectively remove them from your yard and garden, you will be a much happier camper.
